people, people, people
The sound might be a little off. SO WHAT!! It's a Dead show and i have very few that i can't listen to. Never had the chance to see the live so this is the closest i can get. Well this site and http://www.thetradersden.org. So enjoy this non-renewable resource.

Ah... that was a great night!
Having finally dipped my toe into the 21st century and gotten meself hooked up with DSL, I finally started downloading a few shows and at the suggestion of a buddy who was also there, I snagged this Deer Creek show. I remember both nights of this run being balls-out fun, and I'll be damned if the recording doesn't bear that out!
I don't agree at all with the previous review complaining about the sound quality of this one. I downloaded the SHNs and burned myself a set to play on the ol' stereo, and for a late-model audience recording it sounds damned good. It's a little boomy in terms of vocals and drums, but there's also a richness to the low end that seems to balance out the boominess nicely. And the instruments (aside from the drums) sound pretty damned clear to me. The SBD that's streaming on this site sounds fine, but it's got that sterility that a lot of PA boards have.
Bottom line, the AUD does me up just fine.
And man, was the band ON this night. I remember playing the shit out of the cassette I got sometime after the show, but I'd forgotten how tightly they were locked in at this show. That's a helluva Jack Straw to open the show, and even the TLEO (often something of a snoozer for me in later years) has a hell of a lot going for it. That's always the tip-off that it's a good night, when one of your snoozer tunes suddenly grabs ya by the short and curlies!
Second set is just a blast too. Great China>Rider, of course, and the Estimated is just spot-on as well. Even Weir's vocal cheesery goes almost perfectly with what the rest of the band is doing. And the Box of Rain encore... even better than I remembered it. Jerry's solo is gorgeous, and actually brings to mind the Alpine '89 version that Phil chose for his "Fallout from the Phil Zone" album ten years or so ago.
Only question now is, where's this same taper's AUD from the next night?? Somebody upload that sucker!
Ok, after listening I have to say I'm disappointed. Sound is very muffled. Reinforces that the aud copy I wore out was an oustanding recording. This one does capture the energy of the audience though. Jack Straw is worth downloading as is just for that. I will forever be looking for a good aud copy of this show.

This was one of my favorite shows (91 shows between 84 and 95). 100 mgp right out of the gate. Bruce was all over it, so was Jerry. The entire first set was I think one of the best sets ever, any time. I had a copy of an aud tape that I wore out, looking forward to hearing this one. The interaction between the band and the audience at this show was electric. I remember the hair standing up on my arms and neck -- something you lose with a SBD.
